family and ronald and nancy reagan was the closest of all the american presidents. the reagans had first met prince charles was in california while serving with the real navy in the early 1970s. they had an equally strong relationship with the queen and prince philip, as well as her sister, princess margaret, the queen mother, and her cousin, princess alexandra. they kept an extensive personal correspondence that i was given permission to read at the presidential library out in california, the reagan library. the letters tell a story of infection and thoughtfulness on both sides, over more than three decades. correspondence that continues to this day with nancy reagan. in june of 1982, when the reagans were in europe for summit meetings, the queen invited them to stay at windsor castle. which was the first such personal invitation for an american presidential couple. not only did she arrange such a dedicated telephone line, but she had the first shower installed in the more than 900-year-old castle, because she was told that is what the family needed. it was a family dinner on the

thing i want to say, and i, of course, say in the book is that ronald reagan was wrong. [laughter] about many things. [laughter] the fact is, and we need to celebrate this that the public policies that we have from social security to a long list of earned income tax credit and food stamps and so on are keeping 40 million people out of poverty so that out of the 46 million people we have in poverty, which is certainly bad enough and then some, we would be at 8 # -- 86 million without the -- all of the policies that we have. we have been successful in our public policy. there's a paradox here that -- or an apparent paradox because what i said is absolutely true, but at the same time, if we look at the trends in the percentage of people who are poor in this country, in 1973, we had the lowest percentage that we've had since we started counting in the early 60s. that was 11.1%, and when bill clinton left off after ups and downs -- not downs below 11.1, but going up further, we ended the seeming ri at 11.-- century at 11.3%, and since that time, we had 15 million more people join the r

marginal rate in the united states, when ronald reagan took office, the marginal office with 71% to 72%. it is interesting to me that the greatness that people speak of in terms of the united states, when we talk about the 1940's, the 1950's, the 1960's, 1970's, the marginal rate that folks paid was much greater. nobody says we will go back to that. at the same time, during the clinton years, we had marginal rates that were a little bit higher than they are now and we had some of the best economic times that the country has ever seen. that is what i'm talking about. my concern for the country is that all of this heat has been generated around this issue instead of light and analysis and a sober look at the role that every american play, should play in strengthening our country. that is the concern i have in the long run. >> i want to pick up mr. cruz's suggestion that the economy is in trouble from -- is in trouble. texas has endured. but san antonio has had a tough couple of years. the census bureau report brought these numbers appeared between 2009 and 2011, unemployment in san anton

congress from their own political party. ronald reagan did have the senate for four years but he never had a full congress that was republican. bill clinton did have a full congress that was republican but bill clinton was democrat. and you have fragmented government, george w. bush had a republican congress for four to eight years. george bush scarcely had the best domestic legislative accomplishment that could rival lyndon johnson or to be fair richard nixon. perhaps the 2012 elections will generate a unified government that will pass its preferred programs but it would be foolhardy, most observers at this time is the more or less maintenance of the status quo in which barack obama will continue to occupy the oval office as the republicans continue to patrol by reversed number of the house of representatives with the senate at this time being up for grabs. so we should be open for the possibility that the current election will fit the shakespearean description of sound and fury signifying nothing or very little with regard to domestic policy and that is what i am focusing on. perhaps not

interesting thing is that in today's politics, ronald reagan would probably be too moderate for the party. he raised taxes i think four times. he pleaded with the congress to pass a clean debt ceiling expansion when something went terribly wrong in lebanon. he didn't say we are going to stay the course. he got out. so it wasn't as polarized than. i was just like to see some politicians who can have strong views. they complete their base and all that, but at the end of the day, they know they have to cut a deal that their responsibility as elected officials is to govern and produce bills. >> thanks. >> so we have a great tax system that is systematically moving money from the middle and lower cassis to the upper classes. isn't this exactly the kind of thing the constitution was designed to prevent? so why is networking? >> it is not working because the money that is in politics made it so. that is why k street house all those lobbyists, while the industries beat down the doors of the senate finance committee and house ways and means committee. all those provisions didn't get in there
